Meeting Information

Title: Model-View Patterns: Making Sense of MVC, MVP and MVVM...

The separation enforced by 'Model View' patterns can quickly transform your application into a maintainable, modular and rapidly developed package. New features are easily added, new screens are a snap, testing is enhanced and developers and designers can more easily work simultaneously.

Come compare the Model-View-Controller (MVC), Model-View-Presenter (MVP) and Model-View-View-Model (MVVM) patterns. In this session, we'll...

  • Explore the foundation, benefits and drawbacks of each pattern at an architectural level
  • Contrast differences between each pointing out applicable situations where each may apply
  • Walk through a variety of examples on the Microsoft platform, including Microsoft MVC, ASP.Net, Silverlight and Windows Presentation Foundation
You'll walk away with a clear understanding of each pattern, with examples that you can implement in your projects.
